Today Volvo showed off the all-new S60R and V70R models at the Paris Auto Show. Read all about it on the main page.

NOTE: The above pics are altered using Adobe Photoshop in an effort to "mock up" what the gray and silver colors will look like on the V70R.

Ah...my favorite engine. Well sort of:-D I think i'd be VERY comfortable in the S60R, seeing as though I have a 93 Audi S4. Wonder what the dealer would give me for it...:D

Love the car,
Paul
p.s.-is there anyway I can get my name changed to SuperGroove? I remember registering on this board as SuperGroove, but one day i wasn't able to log in, and I couldn't even get my password sent to me.

Very sweet pics!!! When can I order one? :grin:

Do you have pics of any other interior colors than the, I'm guessing, Natural Aniline Leather? Would love to see a pic of the Dark Blue if you have it, or can get a hold of it.

I think this pretty much settles that this will be my next car.

It looks good in grey.

Any idea on pricing? or did I miss that?

Is the bolt pattern the same as the pre-00 cars? Those wheel would look good on the V70 I cars.

So why did they lower the torque value for the Geartronic? Is it because of the torque converter? That it can't handle so much torque?

I am looking at the Geartronic to purchase as I currently drive a Triptronic and I don't want the hassles of driving in Boston rushhour with a manual.

*sigh* Those manual guys get all the fun http://********************/smile/emsad.gif

I don't really like the hood, its bulged up... almost looks like someone punched the car in the nose and it swollen up

George,

Is the italic R a certain font or is it a Volvo made font?

Any way I could get a version of the R that's the same size of the real emblem?

I don't think it's a common font. Volvo may have made it. I don't have it BTW. I get them wherever I can get them. Otherwise, our model logos such as S60 etc would be in that font. If anyone finds a source on that font, let me know.

I know I should get the manual but then I will be sick of driving it in Boston traffic. It's already bad enough trying to drive with my Tiptronic in manual mode. When I encounter traffic, I just put her into D instead and drive. Saves the frustration for me.
